are there any spoilers for...

(Anonymous)
a Sam-centric episode so far?

Re: are there any spoilers for...

(Anonymous)
Yes, I read that Sam would have problems and flashbacks when his (really ugly) dog get sick, somehow he hurts or tries to hurt Amelia.

Re: are there any spoilers for...

(Anonymous)
which episode is that?

(also, I don't think NuBonesy is ugly, at least he's not a pug.)

I don't think there's been one for a dean-centric Ep either. They seem to be concentrating on introducing all these characters.

Re: are there any spoilers for...

But 8.5 and 8.9 should be Dean-centric based on the spoilers.

That's your assumption, not anything that's been said, though. I assumed the OP was looking for real info, not spec.

Re: are there any spoilers for...

This is the basics that we know so far:

SPOILERS!!!

8.3: per Director!Jensen, it's more or less a MOTW. Sam/Amelia flashbacks, but relatively minor

8.4: Winchester-lite, both Sam and Dean

8.5: Benny-centric with Dean and pirates; Sam/Amelia/nu!Bonesy flashbacks (but they only shot 2 days out of 8, so not sure how much)

8.6: Garth episode so who knows re: Winchesters. Likely MOTW

8.7: episode Cas gets out of purgatory; Amanda Tapping introduction

8.8: crazy cartoon epi with Cas hunting with Sam and Dean; Mike Farrell guest starring

8.9: mid-season hiatus; Benny-centric per Ty Olssen, at least one big scene with Dean; Jared has at least 1 or 2 days off from filming, but no spoilers re: Sam or Cas

It's safe to say Benny-centric eps are Dean-centric eps as well since Benny is a Dean-centric character.

ayrt

You are probably right, although it sounds more like the Benny-centric episodes have a lot of solo backstory for him. Ty was shooting by himself, without J2 or Misha, on Friday and parts of yesterday (per his very helpful twitter lol).

Oh, and we also get purgatory stuff with Dean, Benny, and Cas in 8.5 as well.

I'm hoping the Alpha Vamp is involved somehow

Re: are there any spoilers for...

The cartoon ep has Cas hunting with them? D:
That was the one episode I was looking forward to other than 8.4

Re: are there any spoilers for...

(Anonymous)
Nope, not one and that's really strange seeing as even Benny and Cas have 2 each. One wonders if Eeyores are right and the character is being phased out? There really is no other explanation to it whichever way you look at it. Instead we get a Sam'n'Dean lite ep (8.4), to give Jensen some respite.

The signs are all there, whatever contract they allegedly have signed.

I feel like the paranoia is infecting me, because I'm actually starting to believe this. The Amelia plotline is a perfect way to write a character off a show without killing them. The thing is, Sam doesn't want to hunt right now, and if he is going to change his mind, they need to write reasons for him to do so. So far, there doesn't seem to be any time in the narrative for that to occur (there are no spoilers about the back half of the season being more Sam-focused, right? All we know is that it will be more centred on the Amanda Tapping angels, y/n?) The episodes we do know about are either Winchester-light or Sam-lite.

There are other explanations: Jared wanted extra time off due to baby, they have plans for Sam later in the season, etc. But I'm seriously beginning to wonder about it.

Re: are there any spoilers for...

(Anonymous)
The Eeyores also claimed that 8.2 was Sam-lite, so they aren't the best judge.

Re: are there any spoilers for...

I agree that at this point it would seem Sam is being written out but... he isn't. I mean, what talk has there been of him leaving the show? All we've heard is that they've agreed to do more seasons. It was even necessary to say that considering there's an off chance the show could be cancelled (though unlikely) so... I don't know. If there's genuine talk of Sam leaving the show I'd be interested to hear, otherwise I don't think there's any reason to think its actually going to happen.
